NBNA Day on Capitol Hill


In addition to our Annual Institute and Conference, the NBNA hosts a forum in February of each year dedicated to congressional health issues and policy. All Congressional Black Caucus members are invited to bring "greetings" as are the presidents of the 13 member organizations of the Black Congress on Health, Law and Economics (BCHLE). The Greater Washington Area Black Nurses Association hosts a health fair for NBNA Day participants, Capitol Hill staffers and employees, and the community. Blood pressure, glucose monitoring for diabetes, clinical depression, and cholesterol screenings are conducted. These events are open to the public.
